Kananu who took oath of office before the judge of the high court and other supporters also unveiled a five points agenda in the ten months that she will be in charge of Nairobi.

She pledged to work together with the Nairobi metropolitan service that was given key mandate in the capital city just before the ousting of Mike Sonko.
